Just curious. I'm sure there are some fun stories of women turning tradition on it's head and proposing. I don't have any story like that myself but I'd love to hear them for a change.
For us, we just always talked about our future and getting old and having grandchildren and children and etc. so we just casually decided to set a date for our inevitable wedding and also discussed that a surprise proposal, or any proposal would be weird and phony in our relationship. Just since we both already decided to get married.
Not trying to throw any shade on tradition by the way, I just know everyone's story doesn't look like a guy on one knee, nor should it.
